Our Story

 

Three years ago we founded Letterbox Farm, a collectively owned and operated commercial farm in Hudson, NY. We are a young, quickly growing start-up, working to build a diverse and sustainable farm. We tend 64 acres of fields, woods, ravines, and mountainside, just outside downtown Hudson. Our river town is home to 7,000 diverse residents and a burgeoning new economy based on food, arts and culture.

 

What We Do

 

We raise special vegetables, herbs, pork, chicken, eggs, and rabbit using best practices in animal welfare and organic management. We distribute our goods through two farmers markets (Rhinebeck NY and Chappaqua NY), a fleet of restaurants in the valley and Manhattan, and a full-diet CSA.

 

Outside the work day, we undertake research and community organizing projects that benefit the farm community and our local economy. We also host farm dinners and events that celebrate seasonality and place.

 

Our Mission

 

To develop a exemplary diversified farm that takes care of land, takes care of people, and generates real wealth in our community.
